Rough Runner – a new obstacle racing event – is coming to Scotland on 6/7 August. The event will feature three distances: a 5k with obstacles focused on fun; a 15k with additional, more physically challenging obstacles; and a 10k with a combination of both.
The event is inspired by the UK’s favourite classic game shows such as Gladiators, Wipeout, and Ninja Warrior. Organisers claim the event will put the fun back into a sport that has for too long been about punishing its participants.
Those taking part can look forward to sweeper arms, big balls, a 40m water slide, and the legendary Travelator. These obstacles have only ever been seen on TV, but participants will finally get the chance to try them for themselves.
The event is suitable for all fitness levels, whether you're a veteran obstacle runner or a first timer.
